OMG, the dirt road scared the bejesus out of me!!! The road was gravel, windy, and so narrow that I don't know what we would have done if someone was coming down the hill at the same time we were going up. I was so afraid we were going to go tumbling down the mountain, car and all.

Once we got to the top and parked, I thorough enjoyed the hike to the tower. It's a pretty steep hike and you're pretty high up, so plan to take your time.

Beautiful view.

Quick museum with a lot of very interesting information about the people and history of Deadwood and the area. Only disappointment was that the Thoren Stone was on loan, so we were not able to see it.

This was a nice stop. Pretty cool to see Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane's burial sites. The trip up to see Seth Bullock's site was tough and the trees had grown in, so we really couldn't see anything (was supposed to have been able to see Friendship Tower).

The visitor's center had some interesting information, like how many of the grave sites were moved from an earlier cemetery.

Great hotel out of the fray of Deadwood. Yes, we non-bikers planned our vacation during the Sturgis Rally. We appreciated being at the Lodge because it was not right in the downtown section, so we were able to get out to see other sites much easier. Also, it's still close to downtown.

My teenage kids enjoyed the pool and I loved the hot tub (clearest water I've ever seen in a hot tub). The restaurant was fantastic. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner there and enjoyed all three.

This airport is really quaint. There are only 7 terminals, all off one main wing. The downstairs has the check in counters, baggage claim, and the rental car companies (all rental car companies share the same parking lot).

There is one quick service restaurant inside security and one sit down restaurant before entering security. There is only one security/screening line and it can get slow, but the people working there are incredibly nice.

The airport was clean, with plenty of plugs for electronic devices.
